CLIMATE MARCH – Nov. 29, 2019

Student reflections from the Global Climate March, Nov. 29 2019

It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a sign or say anything. It just matters that you show up there. I had a good time. I have an idea for a sign: “Extinction is the worst. But what’s worse? its climate change” – Myles

Today was exciting, fun, can’t wait to do it again! It was loud.  – Theo

Today was really crazy we saw people in bikini they must be cold. [Their sign said, “I’d rather be cold than hot”] It was very crowded; a lot of interesting signs and a lot of interesting chants. Like one that I remember “You can’t drink oil! Keep it in the soil!”. No dinosaurs. It was a lot colder and easier to walk a long way, although some people would disagree with me. – Chloe

The climate change march was tiring! – Henry

It was really inspiring and, but it was super tiring and it was super fun. – Olivia

It was good. it was amazing. And it’s very extraordinary that some people even know there’s climate change but they don’t do anything. It’s just so funny. That they don’t believe that it’s a thing. It is a thing! It’s gonna kill you if you don’t act now. That’s why we should have no more pollution. – Manus (So show up to the next climate march!)

The earth is a giant pizza and it’s about to get burnt in the pizza oven. – Raz

THE TREE OF LIFE!!!!!!!!!

Today started like any day it was really windy so knowing some small twigs were most likely to fall on us but nothing big me Olivia and Xavier started to make a pile of unusually soft pine needles at first it was the size of the a dog bed but eventually it was getting bigger until more people started to see what we were doing so they started to make there own side places we  made little houses i had a guest room my room and a flight deck for example we called it the tree of life and every animal lived up there!!!!!

breaking news!!!!!!!!!!! viking put-down funeral!!!! At tamarack west!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today we had a put-down funeral you might be wondering what is a put-down funeral well we made a stick raft made of twigs ,string, leaves ,flowers and paper with put-downs on them. You might be asking asking what is a put-down a put-downs are things you do not want in your life and words you do not want to hear. So we lit the paper on fire, set the raft afloat, and than we made a rock store and we threw rocks at it but finally people retrieved the raft. when we got back to tamarack we had a appreciation circle. We each had a piece of string, a person said something nice and gave the person who the complimented a bead to put on there string.
